I love how people act like sooooo much has changed over 2 months when all Jordan has done is written two letters to the public.

As the poor memories of Bob Johnson's early seasons' incompetence and racism fade, then so will the distaste for the Bobcats.

I tend to agree. Its not the name that is so bad. Its the dummy that the name makes everyone think about that is bad about it. Thank God Bob Johnson is gone for good!

...and still very much in Michael's ear. Seeing our joke of a newspaper and the haters try to stick it to Bob Johnson while he is still in ownership and has alot of influence over our current owner and front office just might just be FAIL of the decade. :lol:

As are The Supersonics...

But seriously, am I the only one who thinks New Orleans should change there name so we can go back to being the Charlotte Hornets?

I agree with this, but if this can't happen, I really don't see the point.

Yet, those two letters have meant more than anything Bob did. Its the little things that count. The only name change id be down for would be it the league let the there be a name swap deal kinda thing..aka Charlotte gets the hornets back, new orleans the jazz and utah can get either the bobcats or come up with their own. We could even use the bobcats as sweet throwbacks...???

No. I wish they would have pulled a Cleveland Browns and let us keep the name, etc. when they moved. But it's too late now.

How many letters did Jerry Richardson have to send out?

Hell, he won't even talk to the press.

Wow, this is great news!

I literally just got done w/ an e-mail/letter about why Jordan should change the name to the "Flight". I sent it to the Bobcats front office (it probably won't get read, but it's definitely worth a shot)

All the help (from fans) we can get will send a message to MJ (which it seems like he already knows)

In hindsight, I'm so glad Bob Johnson was rewarded the franchise and not Larry Bird. Now we have the greatest ever running the team and he seems to really be in tune w/ with the fans.

I'm super excited for Charlotte basketball!

Thank you MJ!!!

It's def. not too late in the game.

It would be a smart move...on many levels...

We shouldn't feel we Have to keep the name now just b/c it's the name. It's a terrible name, and most of you now saying 'no' know that.
